Nov 14, 2009 - Exploring NE AL

This is our last weekend here in Fort Payne, AL before we continue south to the gulf. We visited today 2 beautiful park on the west side of town, about an hour away. The first park was a great surprise. The centerpiece of High Falls Park is the 35-feet waterfall. Formed by Town Creek, the falls span some 300 feet across at times. In the park itself you can find streams and rocks, and even a picnic area to take a lunch break. The second park - Lake Guntersville - has a well developped network of hiking trail, and we spent most of our time in...

Apr 9, 2007 - Guntersville, AL

April 9 Monday, We left Ft. Yargo and GA for Guntersville, AL. Tom had worked with Dennis Ryan at the Greenville 3M plant for several years, so we were going to stop and see Dennis and his wife Shirley and also visit the Luggage Reclamation store in Scottsboro, Al, about 30 miles north. The drive went smoothly, and we pulled into Lake Guntersville State Park around 3 PM. The campsites were large and the campground also borders a lake. The site had full hook-ups and was only $15 per night. This was probably the best State Park and least...

Mar 31, 2007 - BAD Experience - TCI Tire Centers

Continued from the previous entry of this same date. Now, unless you are much different than I, you'll understand that I did not check-out the work done by the tire installers before leaving their lot. I soon found that omission to be a major mistake. Somewhere between the shuffles on Bankston's lot, I looked at the tires during my idleness. I found that none of the six new tires had a valve cap on them, at least one of the four chrome wheels had greasy handprints all over it from the installation, some of the tires did not have sufficient...

We're Wingin' It

Mar 2, 2007 - Little Mountain Marina Resort, Langston AL, Elev 605 ft

We're back in Alabama! Although the distance from our last park was not very far, it was a 5 hour drive today. Longer than we really want to drive but we saw alot of Alabama and Georgia backcountry that we would normally not have driven through. We still think that north Georgia is a very special place (inspite of all the tornados). We were scheduled to arrive here yesterday, but Sarah, in her great wisdom (she calls it sheer terror!), decided that we should wait a day due to the weather. When we rolled out of bed yesterday, there was...

Mar 11, 2006 - Langston, AL

We stayed at Mountain Lakes Resort for eight days. It is right on the Tennessee River's, Gunterville Lake. They had a restaurant, for when you did not want to cook and an indoor swimming pool, which made it nice in the chilly weather. The campground was so nice that we just laid around visiting with the other campers and had campfires each night.
